Learn how to make a sun print, otherwise known as a cyanotype - this type of printing is unique in that it is a form of photography that does not require a camera or an expensive darkroom.
I will provide gloves and aprons but it's best not to wear your favourite clothes just in case you get chemicals on them. You are welcome to bring your own materials (stencils, negatives, flowers etc) and play around with the prints. I will provide all other materials, including a hair dryer..... all will be revealed!
I do have a UV lamp if it happens to be an overcast day - let's face it, it's Britain!
You will be making one fabric print to fit in a 23cm x 23cm embroidery hoop. I will provide the fabric and hoop. The fabric will either be cotton or cotton canvas. Please bring something with you to help you transport the embroidery hoop back home in a flat position.
We will also do a few practice paper prints for you to take home with you.
The class duration is 1 hour with a maximum of 2 people per workshop.
I will keep you topped up with tea or coffee (or Prosecco if a special occasion!)
There is usually parking available on my road and the nearest rail station is Fulwell or Twickenham, London.
